Blog tour alert! To celebrate the release of Celeste Ng’s new book Little Fires Everywhere I am part of the blog tour arranged by the publishers, Little Brown. I have read the book, loved the book and reviewed it below.

In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned — from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules…

Disney. I have wanted to run with Disney for a few years now, ever since I heard of the races held in the American parks. Since I won’t be going to America any time soon (until a certain President isn’t there any longer) I was thrilled when Disneyland Paris also starting hosting them. This year was the second year they did and the first I decided to go to.

Of all the races they had, I decided to sign up for the 10k and the half marathon. Both of these races made up the 31k Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo Challenge and that meant that if everything went to plan, I would be leaving with three glorious medals.

Porridge has become my go to breakfast of choice. Sometimes even my go to lunch or dinner of choice.

I ran, I partied, and I collected one of the loveliest medals ever. Welcome to my race recap for the lululemon Seawheeze Half 2017! My first half marathon took me to London. My second took me to Vancouver. I love travelling to run and running when I travel. This was the perfect way to mix both, especially because I had never been to Canada. Seawheeze isn’t just a race, it is also a weekend of pre- and post-Wheeze activities.

Kate Shackleton is back! She is one of my favourite book detectives and in Death in the Stars she is solving the murder of comic Billy Moffat. It’s 1927 and eclipse fever has taken over the country. Kate is asked to arrange a flight for a music hall star, Selina Fellini and Billy from Leeds to Giggleswick School. The school happens to be one of the best places to view the eclipse. Two things stuck me about this:

  • Why would anyone hire a private detective to sort out travel arrangements for them? There has to be something more.
  • Someone called a school ‘Giggleswick’ and thought it was a good idea.
